Free Virtual Film Screening: Women's History and Social Justice

5/7/2020 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT

Free Virtual Film Screening: Women's History and Social Justice
We invite you to view two short films about recent current events that highlight the current inequality in voting access in the United States and the power of individuals working together to create change. Then, join us on May 7th at 7:00pm for a virtual Filmmaker Q&A with a few of the filmmakers who worked on Women's March. Each film is about 30 minutes in length. This program is presented in conjunction with our current exhibition, "From Suffrage to #MeToo: Groundbreaking Women in Sonoma County."

Women's MarchA documentary about human rights, and what it means to stand up for your values in America today. On January 21, 2017, hundreds of thousands of women marched on Washington, DC. That same day, hundreds of sister marches took place across the country and around the world. It grew into the largest one-day protest in American history.

Suppressed: The Fight to Vote - This documentary by Robert Greenwald, that weaves together personal stories from voters across the state of Georgia to paint an undeniable picture of voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election where Stacey Abrams fought to become the first Black female governor in the U.S. The issues Georgians faced included polling place closures, voter purges, missing absentee ballots, extreme wait times and a host of voter ID issues – all of which disproportionately prevented many students and people of color from casting their ballots.
